MISSION

The Association of Native American Medical Students (ANAMS) is a student organization representing Native American graduate health professions students throughout the US and Canada. The goals of ANAMS include providing support and a resource network for all Native Americans currently enrolled in various allied health professions schools. ANAMS strives to increase the number of Native American students in medicine and other health professions. Exposure and recognition on a national level throughout the medical community is what we continue to promote.

Our organization is primarily supported by the Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP). On our pathway into the health professions we hope to provide Native students a resource network.
